  • Samsung Semiconductor is hinting at 200MP telephoto cameras coming to phones.
  • The company says 200MP tele cameras would offer better portraits and zoom quality.
  • Rumors persist that the vivo X100 Pro Plus could be the first phone with a 200MP tele lens.

We’ve seen smartphones with 200MP cameras launching in the last 12 months, but these sensors are typically confined to the main camera. Now, Samsung Semiconductor has hinted at 200MP telephoto cameras, and this development could be a major upgrade for several reasons.

Samsung posted an article on its website, calling 200MP telephoto cameras the “next big thing in smartphone photography.” For starters, the company notes that a telephoto camera is preferable for portrait shots due to reduced distortion compared to shooting with a main camera sensor.
